Based in Mianyang Science and Technology City, Sichuan
Province, the National Research Centre for Municipal
Wastewater Treatment and Reuse (hereinafter referred to as “the Centre”) is a business-oriented legal entity jointly funded by
China Academy of Engineering Physics, Southwest Municipal Engineering Design &
Research Institute of China, Sichuan University, CWEG, etc. and approved by the
Science and Technology Department of Sichuan Province in 2004. The Centre
focuses on the research and industrialization of municipal wastewater treatment
and reuse technologies, and has built up its own strengths in developing new
environmental technologies and equipment, and manufacturing integrated
equipment and systems.
Founded in 1958, China Academy of Engineering Physics is a scientific research base that is specifically designated in the state plan while integrating theory research, experimentation, design and production of advanced national defense science and technology. It is now staffed with 11 academicians from Chinese Academy of Sciences and 12 academicians from Chinese Academy of Engineering. Due to its special business needs, China Academy of Engineering Physics has been committed to the research and development of various wastewater, waste residue and exhaust treatment technologies and supporting facilities since its establishment. It has built up a well-experienced team of environmental protection technology and has made a large portfolio of IP-protected scientific and technological achievements. The environmental protection industry has become part of China Academy of Engineering Physics’ three pillar industries that focuses on “military-into-civilian” application.
its own advantages and by pooling wisdom at home and abroad, the Centre takes “promoting sustainable
utilization of water resources and sustainable development of China in terms of
both social economical dimensions” as its mission. It has been dedicated to developing
new technologies, processes and equipment in the field of water pollution
control and integrated utilization of water resources, in a bid to rapidly
industrialize its scientific and technological achievements.
The Centre has now grown into an “incubator” that integrates basic research, technology & equipment development and production, engineering design and construction, operations management, and professionals training, with a R&D team led by expert academicians and focused on industry-university-research cooperation in place. The team plays an important role in tackling technical problems, transforming achievements, engineering construction, consulting and training, etc., earning high recognition during domestic and foreign technical exchange meetings.
